One week of testing

Finally I have ended my testing period. This week I have been testing the slow stoch indicator. With no great results.
I finally cleaned all my charts again, now again almost naked.

What I have learned from this, there is no indicator that is showing in a secret direction. I have all information in the price charts. Taking f.ex. several Slow Stochastic indicator for diversion, I can see the same reversal in the price. One thing it helped me I have to admit is that using indicators, they are giving me signals. By looking at the prices I have to give the signals to myself. But thats just a learning period until I notice these signals.

Awesome, have fun! Post a couple pics when you get back.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
